dc.description.abstractIn the past few years, mass-media and political actors, especially emergent populist and right-wing political movements, effectively enhanced sentiments of panic and fear nourished by the idea that there is a severe crisis of borders in Western democracies. States’ inability to manage the flows of migrants and refugees has exacerbated security policies. The narrative of crisis has ideologically and politically justified the affirmation of humanitarian borders as zones where practices of aid and rescue merge with policing and rejection. The 2015 “migration crisis”, for example, did not only make explicit the dysfunctionality of Europe’s asylum system and its broader architecture, but it also made evident how politics of emergency and rejection increasingly undermine migrants safety.
